Southern ground hornbill, Kruger NP

I was fortunate enough to see quite a few of these large, threatened hornbills walking by the roadside.

The close proximity made shooting hard, as I was always getting a downwards view on them - which made for very unattractive results.

This chap, obviously used to getting handouts from cars, came directly towards me and I decided to get a head-on close-up. He reminds me of Beavis.
